 Welcome to HammondCare Waratah

With 85 years of experience in providing expert dementia care, palliative care and frail aged care, HammondCare is regarded as one of Australia’s most innovative health and aged care providers.

Situated in Newcastle, HammondCare Waratah offers unparalleled compassionate and specialised care for people of frail age, as permanent residents or in respite care, including those living with dementia.

“HammondCare Waratah is doing an excellent job looking after my wife’s mental, physical and emotional health. I can honestly say that I couldn’t do a better job than what they are doing.” - Brook*

What does HammondCare Waratah offer?

The warmth of home: All 17 cottages provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere with the comforts of home. They each have their own single ensuite rooms, dining and sitting areas for residents to use any time of day and night. A newly built two-level care home featuring 72 smart-technology rooms. Each room incorporates a host of modern technologies and premium level finishes designed to make life more comfortable for those who are frail aged.

Engagement with life: We encourage residents to take part in everyday activities which provides a sense of purpose and feeling involved. We also offer residents a variety of social and recreational opportunities, with an on-site chapel, hair salon, garden and community centre.

A fresh food culture: High quality, varied, and delicious food is essential to everyone’s physical and emotional health. That’s why we ensure all meals are freshly cooked on-site and we spend significantly more on each meal than industry average.

Surprisingly affordable: At HammondCare, we provide the highest possible quality of care. But that does not mean we cost more. Your financial situation will not affect finding a place at HammondCare.

HammondCare Residential Care & COVID-19

HammondCare puts residents' health and well-being first. As we learn to live with the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to follow the directives and guidelines of the Australian and the State Governments.

In addition to ongoing infection prevention and control measures, several additional steps have been taken to mitigate the risks and impact of COVID-19. HammondCare’s Pandemic Plan includes state-specific Visitor Guidelines, which are updated regularly, targeted staff training; procurement of necessary resources; additional cleaning practices; liaison with government and peak bodies; and regular communication updates to all relevant stakeholders.

Also, to allow visits to continue during the height of the pandemic and when outbreaks occur, HammondCare created the Partnering in Care Program. The special infection control program for residential care home visitors makes it possible for people to keep seeing their loved one, as we understand how much visits mean.

The program is designed to help visitors continue their care home visits to manage risk in an intelligent and measured way in each home. Available to all HammondCare resident’s loved ones, the program helps inform and educate people on topics that can help minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
